I’m not going to lie: today started off a little rough. Â My wife and I had stayed up well into the early morning hours last night, talking about this and that (mostly related to her graduate program), and so I’ve learned that 6 hours of interrupted sleep is not sufficient for me to be a functioning human being, at least until I’ve had some coffee.
Said coffee was purchased at Otherlands, where I like to spend my Fridays working away from the office. Â Even the barrista on duty recognized that I was still half asleep when I rolled in around 10:30 this morning. Â But a few cups of coffee and a wheat bagel with piles of hummus soon set me right.
After spending most of the day working at Otherlands, I biked home to drop off some stuff and then head out to run a few errands. Â The first stop was the quickie mart on Cooper for a few toiletries. Â It was also there that I forgot to restart the GPS app on my iPhone, so the map of my ride today is a little incomplete. Â Here it is.
After biking to the package store on Union for a bottle of vino, I headed home. Â It’s been a really busy week here at Biking in Memphis and I was happy to have such nice weather today. Â A bit warm but not at all unbearable. Â My wife and I spent the evening having dinner and then watching “The American,” which was actually not too shabby. Â We are soon headed to bed.
Don’t forget that tomorrow morning is the Rock and Roll Revolution Bike Ride. Â Hope to see you there.
